Disaster!

I stitched the 'C' on Saturday and another 'T' on Sunday.

I was on track to give these to some ex-colleagues that I was catching up with on Monday.

and then disaster struck!

A little cold water rinse as per instructions and the red ran!

I am not a happy stitcher and decided that no-one could have one if I couldn't give all my friends a present!

Happy Stitching

How terrible after all that work.
What if you try some 'no run'. I have used it before and it worked a treat when some overdyed thread ran.

Oh no how frustrating and well....(insert appropriate word) annoying.

Good suggestion from Marina, I hope it works.

Jantine said...

Oh no, all that work and then this... Hope your next day will be better!
Not sure what to do about the bleeding though...

I'd be spitting chips...

So sorry you had this crafting mishap. I dont know anything about stain removal but I hope you can fix it.

Hope you have solved your problem by this - I had a disaster quite some years ago with hand-dyed fabrics in an appliqued RAFFLE QUILT - gently treated the colour run with a Napisan product and it came up a treat. Also, I had re-appearing brown marks on my red and green Flowering Almond quilt, from a washable marker pen, treated them the same way and it has remained beautifully for many years now. Let me know if you need to know the exact product, I will pop to the shop tomorrow and let you know the exact one!
